The planets are pretty bright, so they don't really need a long exposure.

Agreed. The OP asked about stars, not planets.

But later clarified that she meant Jupiter+Saturn.

Of course, they're just basically going to look like orbs without pretty strong magnification.

Yes, I am going to try with my M5 + 100-400L ii at 400mm if the cloud clears, but even 400mm is too short based on some research with Stellarium. I really need at least 800mm (on APS-C) and a very clear sky - I don't have 800mm, and a clear sky in hot humid summer weather (Australia) with the planets low on the horizon is pretty unlikely.

Hopefully you get a chance to do it. I'd like to see how it looks at 400mm.
